Daiichi 1100 Wide Gape Dry Fly Hook with Oversized Down Eye

Daiichi 1100 Wide Gape Dry Fly Hook

Daiichi



In 1990, Jim Lepage and the Orvis Co. designed and patented the original “Big Eye” hook. The original big eye was a straight eyed dry fly hook with an oversized eye (Daiichi 1110) to facilitate easy threading of tippets. Style 1100 was introduced in 1994. It's the same basic design as the 1110 except it features a more popular down-eye for dry flies.
